The best candles for summer

Scents of summer: the best candles for creating immaculate summer vibes

Candles might not immediately spring to mind in summer – we typically think of cosiness and dark winter nights.  But candles can just as easily capture the essence of this sun-drenched vibrant season, and of course our essential oil candles work their relaxation magic all year round.  Summer is never quite as laidback as you imagine so we could all do with a bit of seasonal self-care time.

Here are the three BALMY fragrances that best encapsulate all the carefree joy, abundance and radiance that summer has to offer.

Wild Shores Scented Candle

Picture yourself strolling along a blustery beach accompanied by the rhythmic sound of waves and fresh salty air. With notes of citrus, driftwood and seasalt, Wild Shores’ refreshing and energising blend of peppermint, teatree and rosemary awakens the senses, whilst amyris, frankincense and cedarwood ground and provide depth.

Dusky Skies Scented Candle

As the sun begins to set, the sky is filled with hues of pink, purple, and gold. Our Dusky Skies scented candle recreates the softness and sensuality of these moments, with warm and smoky accords of ylang ylang, frankincense, clove and myrrh alongside gentle floral and herbal top notes of lavender, palmerosa and geranium.  Choose this scent for a cozy and inviting ambiance, perfect for unwinding after a long summer day.
